Film and TV Title Design: A Survey   

Most people love watching movies, yet few take the time to watch the film titles up front or the end credits after the movie ends. Many do not regard them as part of the movie. This course will start with a brief history of film titles, their reason for being, and how they evolved. Then, the course will examine the transition from static titles to dynamic sequences in the 50s and 60s. A close look at the work of iconic designers like Saul Bass and Kyle Cooper, among others, will provide opportunities for context and comparison. Besides movies, members will look at title sequences for TV and streaming services. Over five weeks, many title sequences will be reviewed, as it is the only way to really understand and appreciate them. This journey will be informative and fun!
